Week 6 of the 2023 NFL season is here, and things kicked off on Thursday Night Football as we witnessed a slightly-competitive AFC West battle with the Kansas City Chiefs (5-1) taking down the flailing Denver Broncos (1-5).
This week features a rather lopsided slate, with four games featuring spreads of more than 10 points. There are a couple of interesting matchups among them, like our Atlanta Falcons (3-2) taking on the Washington Commanders (2-3), the hated New Orleans Saints (3-2) against the Houston Texans (2-3), the Seattle Seahawks (2-2) taking on the rejuvenated Cincinnati Bengals (2-3), and the Detroit Lions (4-1) facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-1).
Before we get to the picks, let’s check in on our staff standings.
The standings are still within a few games at the top. With Chambers bowing out after one week, Kevin Knight remains in the lead at 67% with Aaron Freeman just two games behind at 65%. Jeanna Kelley is in third with 63%, with Dave Choate (62%) and Will McFadden (60%) close behind.
Speaking of Week 6, here are the staff’s picks. As more writers join in, they’ll appear in the picks below.
